Sports last month Share Tweet Pin Share According to reports, Manny Pacquiao is gearing up to defend his secondary WBA Welterweight World title against Adrien Broner in January. The Filipino boxer made the announcement during a news conference for a non-profit International Sports Promotion Society held in Manila. Pacquiao stated that he would be fighting Broner next either on January 12 or 19 and revealed that plans for the FOX Pay-Per-View event expected to take place in Las Vegas are about “90 percent” done. Despite the announcement, boxing insiders are pointing out that Pacquiao has to settle his eight-figure tax debt with the IRS before anything is formalized. Since Pacquiao is now signed with Floyd Mayweather’s promoter and manager, Al Haymon, Broner victory could definitely lead to a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao rematch in the Spring. Stay tuned for more news as the story develops. For more sports news, the NFL is reportedly looking to secure Jeff Bezos as the next Seattle Seahawks owner.
